Update prevents wireless charging from working on Galaxy S20 and Note20

One of the latest software updates Samsung released for its latest topspaces apparently caused wireless charging to stop. Interestingly, the first reports of this issue appeared in September, but SamMobile staff noticed a significant increase in the number of complaints in this regard after the latest update released by Samsung. Basically, everyone complains, that after updating their equipment, they are no longer able to charge the battery of the Galaxy Note20, or Galaxy S20, with a wireless charger.

Fortunately, this bug does not seem to affect all users. I’m right now even with a Galaxy Note20 Ultra (the review is coming out this weekend), today I got a new update that comes with the November security patch, and I have no issues , and I am able to charge it in a wireless charger.

Samsung update stops wireless charging of Galaxy S20 and Note20

However, on Samsung’s forums dozens of users claim that the fault behaves differently from device to device and while in some cases the charging does not work, others claim that the process is interrupted. a few seconds after starting.

“The same problem here in Europe with Exynos s20 +, on 3 different chargers. I have tried all possible combinations of charging settings, restarting the phone etc. nothing worked. Meanwhile, the S9 + charges quickly to perfection. I suspect a bug in the firmware and am waiting for a fix from Samsung ”- This is just one of the reports.

As of now, Samsung has yet to comment on this issue, so we still don’t know if a solution is in the works or not. But one thing is for sure, if you haven’t installed the latest Samsung updates on your Galaxy S20 or Note20 yet, it is better to wait a few more days to install them. If wireless charging isn’t important to you, you can (and should) update at will.
